Windstar Cruises has taken delivery of the newly renovated and extended Star Pride from Fincantieri at the shipbuilder’s yard in Palermo, Italy. The ship is the third and final of the cruise line’s vessels to be lengthened and updated over a multi-year, $250 million project.  

“We are thrilled to have all three of our yachts completely reimagined, from the new, more environmentally friendly engines to the gorgeous new restaurant spaces, spacious suites and romantic spas,” said Christopher Prelog, president of Windstar Cruises. “We couldn’t be happier with the results. Our passengers who are already sailing with us on these transformed yachts are raving, giving us higher customer experience scores than we’ve ever received in our company’s history.”   

Star Pride will remain in Italy until she resumes guest operations in April in the Mediterranean. Sister ship Star Breeze will begin sailing in Tahiti next week, while Star Legend is completing a short season in the Mediterranean before sailing to the Caribbean in November. 

All three yachts increased in maximum capacity from 212 guests to 312 and now provide additional dining experiences, a new spa and fitness center, an infinity pool, and more outdoor deck areas. In addition, Star Pride and all of Windstar’s ships received renovations to update HVAC systems, adding new hospital grade high-efficiency particulate filters  to clean the air onboard.
